Laguna Beach, CA, January 23, 2012 – Each week the dreambikes auction continues to gain momentum, and it is so exciting to think of how many people are aware of Wheels 4 Life and the amazing work Hans Rey is doing. After the auction of the Tomac Supermatic 120, we have raised a total of $22,277, or enough to purchase 222 bikes for Wheels 4 Life—thatʼs 45% of our goal!
The next dreambikes auction: Ibis Mojo SL
Donʼt miss your chance to own this truly unique Ibis Mojo SL. This is one of two custom painted Mojo SL frames for the crankbrothers race club. The custom blue paint looks beautiful with the gold and blue crankbrothers cobalt products, and the Ibis Mojo SL is a stunner in itself. Its long travel and light weight blur the line between all mountain and cross country riding, and itʼs simply one of the best bikes you will ride.

Project of the week
For this weekʼs auction of the Ibis Mojo SL, the winner will contribute to providing bikes to a mix of school children, teachers, and farmers in Kapenguria, Kenya. The funds raised will help sponsor Phase 3 bikes for the E4N Foundation, a project lead by a man named John Valent. John has successfully lead two previous projects with Wheels 4 Life (Phases 1 and 2), and he has now applied for an additional 50 bikes to support this community.
John is very passionate about the difference a bicycle can make not just to one person, but to an entire family. His progress reports over the years have proven just how life changing a bike can be. With a bicycle, a child or teacher is able to travel the long distances to school, allowing them to arrive both on time and with plenty of energy and focus. Providing more bikes to children means better access to education and a higher chance at a life without poverty. Johnʼs work has also confirmed that farmers were able to transport a larger load of produce to the nearest market town both faster and in better condition. This allowed their income to double, and the farmers could then support their families with a higher quality of life.
This community has seen impressive results after Phases 1 and 2 of this project, and Phase 3 can only bring even better living conditions to the people in Kapenguria. The dreambikes auction of the Ibis Mojo SL will make a difference directly in Kenya by supporting this project.
Each week the dreambikes auction continues to gain momentum, and it is so exciting to think of how many people are aware of Wheels 4 Life and the incredible change accomplished by Hans Rey and his wife, Carmen.
